Vivi is a little girl living in Hamburg, whose godmother, oddly called Bean, lives on the other side of the world in Sydney. One day Vivi wakes up and decides to wave goodbye to Mammi and Pappi and sets out for Australia. On the way Vivi travels on the back of a turtle, on the tail of a whale and in the pouch of a kangaroo. While peppered with Australian animals and landmarks, this sweet story, written in rhyming verse, is not too cute to handle. The quirky illustrations ensure a modern twist on an Aussie tale.
Perfect for 3 to 6 year olds. HB $24.95
